Resolute Living: Part 1

Resolute Living: Part 1

The month of January is known as the month of new beginnings. We have all just journeyed through the four weeks of Advent, which in the Christian faith is known as the season of preparation for the fulfillment of the new thing that God is about to do. Following Advent, we stepped immediately into the observance & celebration of Christmas, the fulfillment of God’s promised gift of the birth of “Emmanuel”, God with us. On Christmas Eve, we stepped into Christmas as if through our four weeks of Advent we had arrived to the point of being fully prepared to receive & live into God’s gracious gift of His Son, given for us. And now in this first secular month of the year, we step into a New Year as if the former year is past & we were not affected by it & are prepared to live into a new year.

Resolute Living: Part 2

Traditionally, many people make resolutions of how they will live at the start of the new year, committing themselves to change some way they have been living. When I think of the word resolution, I think of a firm decision to act & to live differently based on some deep sense of purpose a person has come to, after some life altering event or awareness. When you think of it, what is more life altering then the birth of our Savior? So, the question is, what resolution, what unwavering commitment will we make to our way of living as we step into this new year, that will contribute to preparing the way for God’s promise to be realized & thus live into the healing of all of creation?

Gift Giving & Receiving: Part 1

The question believers are faced with, is how can we save & continue to grow & develop our key values & pass on the sacred stories & celebrations that were given to us to feed us through life & to light our way in a world, that through a changing culture, dilutes the traditions & blurs the Holy liturgy of our lives?

Walking Through the Seasons of Our Lives: Part 1

Life through all its stages of development, is full of challenges, hopes & dream, as well as disappointments, fears, & joys. It is like a mosaic made up of multiple pieces, each of them full in itself, each of them a steppingstone making up the continuous lifeline we call our life. It makes a difference how we journey through the seasons of life we are given.

Walking Through the Seasons of Our Lives: Part 2

There is no doubt that life is a blessing, However, at the same time it can be very challenging. The fact is every life is simply a series of lives, each one of them with its own task, its own flavor, its own brand of errors, its own glories, its own kind of deep dark despair, and its own plethora of possibilities. Through each stage of our living, God our Creator is walking with us to guide us and show us the way and in that reality is comfort, strength and hope to go forward in the living of our days.

The Healing Grace of the Sacred Pause: Part 1

Sometimes the path on our life journey is smooth, unencumbered, & very clear.  Other times our life is tumultuous & full of challenges.  Often, we have no control over the circumstances we encounter along our path of life. However, we do have choices as to how we view the situations we encounter, whether they are smooth & unencumbered or whether they are tumultuous & our view affects our actions.  The question is, when we encounter a challenge & get stuck or lose our way, how do we regain our vision, balance & focus so we can move forward on a smooth path of whole life once again?
